This pretty, traditional, Cornish cottage offers reverse accommodation with the open plan living space on the first floor. There are exposed beams, original floorboards and large windows allowing exceptional light, and the high ceilings ensure the cottage feels spacious and cosy. The ground floor bedrooms are decorated in lovely coastal tones with vintage furniture and crisp linen, and the master bedroom has French doors opening onto a small courtyard, the perfect place to unwind with a drink and enjoy the wildlife and birds. There is also a sheltered terrace garden to the front of the cottage which is lovely for al fresco dining or simply relaxing after a busy day exploring.
Close to the beautiful and tranquil creekside waters of Devoran, this historic village has a thriving community. Enjoy creekside walks and picnics, and the quay is perfect for swimming, crabbing, boating and kayaking (equipment available to hire from the nearby watersports centre). The pretty village pub serves good food and is just a short stroll away, whilst a bakery with a café is open daily serving tasty cakes, sandwiches and pasties. The village hall hosts various events, and a playground will keep the children entertained. Devoran is a secret haven, a truly lovely village with a mix of terraced cottages and elegant larger properties. It’s also the start of the Bissoe Trail – the popular coast to coast cycle route leading from Devoran on the south coast to Portreath on the rugged north coast. Cycle hire is available locally.
Devoran is situated midway between the bustling sea faring town of Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro, ensuring guests have the best of coastal scenery, beaches and city facilities. Falmouth has an array of prestigious marinas and is one of the deepest natural harbours in the world. It attracts many large yachts and vessels from around the world. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, sits proudly on the headland facing across the estuary to St Mawes Castle. Both have protected the important waterways of the Fal Estuary and creeks for hundreds of years. Falmouth has an abundance of quality restaurants, bars, cafés and a vibrant events calendar, including international sailing, food and music festivals throughout the year. It is also home to some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches and coves. Explore the miles of endless coastal paths, or try the watersports including scuba diving, sailing, canoeing and paddle boarding.
Truro provides great shopping, a cinema, theatre and a scenic river walk to nearby Malpas where guests can stop for lunch overlooking the gorgeous creeks. There are many sub-tropical gardens to explore including Trelissick, Trebah and Glendurgan.
The King Harry drive on-off ferry is close by and provides easy access to the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, including St Mawes, and quick routes to Glendurgan and the Eden Project. Beach 4 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub serving food 200 yards.
